We met actress and author Emma Thompson when she was at her book publisher's office in Manhattan recently. She wrote her third book, "The Spectacular Tale of Peter Rabbit." We loved meeting her and her book is so much fun.

Let's face it: Winter break took its toll. Sweatpants replaced jeans and baggy sweatshirts reigned supreme. Instead of drinking water, we reached for sugary winter drinks. And the thought of wearing makeup, showering daily or even getting out of bed was laughable.

The college football playoff debate has been going on since at least 1971, when NCAA News published an article titled "To Play Off or Not to Play Off ... That's the Question." In the 2014 season, the NCAA finally ditched the Bowl Championship Series and gave us the playoff we've been waiting for - and man, was it exciting.

One of the most important things I've learned after more than 35 years of working is this simple verity: Everyone needs a break during the day. When I arrive at a knotty problem in the writing, I've learned to give my brain some space. Ideas percolate better after a respite.
We had dinner out the other night. That's out as in outside - in the playhouse. The husband built the playhouse when our children were preschool age. It has served as a fort, a bank, a drive-through, a bakery, a jail, an orphanage and sometimes even as a playhouse.
Q. About a year ago I was offered a job in another state. Prior to that I had equal custody of my kids and saw them three or four times a week.My ex's new husband was great, and we were pretty friendly - both coaching the kids' little league games, but once I left he completely took over. Now no one tells me when the games are, no one tells me when there are school conferences or when the kids go to the doctor. When I lived there, I talked to the teachers and doctors all the time. It's very frustrating! I'm always fighting with their mother and stepfather. What's good ex-etiquette?
Q: How do you stop tantrums in a 3-year-old? My daughter never went through the "terrible twos," but began throwing wild tantrums shortly after her third birthday. This coincided with the birth of a sibling, a boy, but she's very affectionate and helpful toward him, so I don't know if there's any connection. I've tried everything I can think of to prevent and stop the tantrums - things I've seen recommended in various places - but nothing has worked. She throws one whenever she doesn't get her way. Help!
